Towing Capacities

The new 2019 RAM 1500 has three options when it comes to engines, each offering different towing capabilities. No matter which you choose, you’ll have a ton of power to work with:

  • 3.6L Pentastar® V6 with eTorque: The standard engine across most available trim levels, this option will grant you 305hp and 269 lb-ft of torque for a 7,730 pound towing capacity
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8: A step up in power, this engine gives you 11,610 pounds of towing capacity to work with thanks to the 395hp and 410 lb-ft of torque it puts out
  • 5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque: Offering the same 395hp and 410 lb-ft of torque but with some added benefits of the eTorque system, this engine offers up Best-in-Class towing numbers with 12,750 pounds

Aided by Engineering

The sheer power granted by the 2019 RAM 1500 is made possible by some advanced performance tech and engineering. Alongside the powerful engine options, your towing capabilities will be bettered by features like:

  • High Strength Frame: You need a strong body to pull all that weight, and the RAM 1500 has that. Over 90% of the frame is built from high-strength steel to offer better durability and give you the power you need
  • TorqueFlite®: The standard 8-speed automatic transmission, a Class-Exclusive, automatically handles shift changes for optimal efficiency and power distribution when driving the streets of Chelsea
  • Blind Spot Monitoring: Feel extra security with the added benefit of the Trailer Detection system, which makes sure your trailer doesn’t block your blind spots to ensure safer lane changes
  • Class-Exclusive Air Suspension: Conquer the beaten path with the exclusive Active-Level™ Air Suspension system on select trims, which grants automatic vehicle leveling for optimal efficiency and reduced drag
  • Excellent Braking Power: The largest-in-class 14.9-inch brakes offer tremendous stopping power, no matter how heavy a load your carrying or towing
